Advanced Reflow, Selective Solder and Rework Systems from Ersa at APEX


Reading time ( words)

Kurtz Ersa North America today announced plans to exhibit in Booth #1337 at the 2018 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place February 27 - March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in Califronia. The Ersa team will highlight a lineup of advanced reflow, selective solder and rework equipment, including its VERSAPRINT 2 Ultra stencil printer, VERSAFLEX-Ultra selective solder module and IR/PL 650 XL rework system.

The VERSAPRINT 2 Ultra is the first stencil printer worldwide with fully integrated 100 percent 3D SPI. Advantages vs. 3D SPI standalone systems include:

  • 3D SPI for the inspection of complex PCBs directly after the printing process
  • VERSAPRINT stencil inspection detects errors before they appear
  • Zero reference measurement of the unprinted PCB can be performed before every print
  • Integrated closed-loop function for print offset compensation
  • One software platform for print inspection – one consistent operator concept
  • Maintenance and service for only one machine
  • One contact for both processes
  • Less space required on the shop floor

The VERSAFLEX-Ultra selective solder module offers unlimited flexibility, productivity and uncompromising quality – two solder pots, either y- and x-variable or z-variable, equipped with different solder and different solder nozzles, can work in parallel.

With its revolutionary flexibility, the soldering pots move freely in x-, y- and z-direction. Each soldering pot is completely independent and has no y- or x-dependencies to the other one. An anti-collision software ensures the free movement of the servo-driven axis system of the soldering pots.

The IR/PL 650 XL is Ersa‘s flagship machine for extra large printed circuit boards (PCBs). PCBs up to 20 x 24" or 500 x 625 mm can now be safely and rapidly reworked using one of the industry's largest and most powerful bottom-side heaters – an 8,000 W medium wavelength IR heater measuring 500 x 625 mm.

Tips to Improve Soldering Tip Life and Reduce Cost

10/10/2018 | Thermaltronics
Whether in production, or repair and rework, the cost of soldering iron tips can be easily overlooked, but with today’s requirement for higher temperatures in lead-free solder applications, the consumption of tips has dramatically increased. This fact, combined with changes in tip design to meet the higher thermal load requirements, has also resulted in escalating tip costs, making tip care a high priority.

What SMT Component Shortages Mean for Design and Manufacturing Engineers

09/13/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
Much has been written about the increasing shortages of electronic components such as MLCCs, chip resistors and other semiconductor devices. And the manufacturing industry is now seeing price increases and greatly extended lead times. It seems the situation is likely to get rapidly worse rather than better. What can we do? Read on.
